    Yes you can do everything with mobilefinder. Did you set the settings of mobilefinder accordingly? System file access and so on?
    Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.

    I have wondered the same thing for awhile now.

    It helps also to turn application Launch off, this way you can browse the applications folder, helpful to change permissions.

    It's great for when you're not at home or your computer is shut down

    Aren't there tweaks you can do to mobile finder through mobile terminal to allow finder to have more access and to have it set permissions that stay set? I thought I read that somewhere and I have been trying to find again so I could see how to do it.

    when I use mobile finder I am unable to change application names and most features dont work such as delete and move
    I'm on 1.1.4
    Help is extremely appreciated

    FileBrowser is another one that I actually prefer over MobileFinder. The interface is smoother and seems to work better overall.

    When Apple updated to 1.1.3, they changed permissions from root to mobile (most likely to see how it performs before they use it in firmware 2.0).

    MobileFinder is only updated to 1.1.2. Therefore, the programmer suggests putting in these lines into terminal or sftp.

    hmod 4755 /Applications/Finder.app/Finder
    chmod 4755 /bin/cat /bin/chmod /usr/bin/chown /bin/cp /bin/ls
    chmod 4755 /bin/mkdir /bin/mv /bin/rm /bin/rmdir /bin/unlink

    Then it should work.
